Why Is Manchester United Internationally Popular?
Manchester United has always been widely popular, so much that its fans are present all over the world; from China and Africa to places like the Old Trafford. However, what’s the reason behind the entire craze for them?
There has always been a debate about the supporters of Manchester not being from there. Some say most of them belong to London, while the rest are not in England also. This seems to be true, as the club is not only popular nationally but on an international scale too.
Some of these fans are so dedicated that they focus on every single one of their moves, judging each and every player. On the other hand, some supporters who are called “glory supporters” only show up whenever there is a victory by the club.
A snowball effect can be witnessed here as all the television networks make a point of broadcasting even the most minor news about them and their games, because they are likely to win all the time.
As the club seems to win so often, the viewers expect only victory from them, enjoy the game and instantly become fans. They are confident that whenever they will start watching their game, it will be a good experience.
Companies are wise enough to see the pattern of winnings that has long been associated with this team. This is what makes them broadcast their news and games all the time so that they get a high number of viewers.
Part of the reason behind all the hype is that people like to feel good. They also save themselves from all the disappointment which would be present in case they supported a team which would often loose.
In case there isn’t any decent team worth supporting, it is expected that most people would choose a foreign team which would bring them the happiness of victory.
